14. ABSTRACT
 
This report documents the methodology used and the results of a computerized photosimulation evaluation to quantifythe military effectiveness of various camouflage patterns across different environments. The evaluation was conducted by the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) between March 2007 andMarch 2009. This study extended a digital blending evaluation conducted by NSRDEC in 2006 of two differentcamouflage patterns in a given environment to multiple environments. The photosimulation evaluation technique usedwas developed by NSRDEC in collaboration with the Aberdeen Test Center in 2008. The objective was to evaluate thedetection performance of camouflage patterns by obtaining visual R 
50
values (range for 50% probability of detection) for a total of 18 standard, foreign and experimental camouflage patterns in various terrain environments under daylightconditions. Probability of detection data were collected from 913 observers. The data clearly show that environment-specific patterns provide the best camouflage, i.e., the lowest probability of detection, in their respective environments.Recommendations for further analysis of the data are included in the report.
